Vanilla Chai Sugar Scrub

Vanilla Chai Sugar Scrub
I have another recipe for you!

Looks good enough to eat doesn’t it?  You probably could, although that might cause for quite the tummy ache….  Here’s another great recipe that can use the Chamomile / Calendula Infused Oil.

Vanilla Chai Sugar Scrub
Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 tsp local honey or raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp organic ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp organic ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 4 drops Ginger essential oil
  • 1/8 cup organic unrefined Coconut Oil
  • 1/8 cup Jojoba oil ( or other carrier oil)
  • 1/8 cup Chamomile / Calendula Infused Oil
  • 8 oz glass jar and lid

Note:  If you do not have the Infused Oil, you can use any combination of carrier oils, just be sure to include some coconut oil or olive oil for it’s antibacterial properties.

1. In a medium bowl, add sugars and spices and combine.  Add vanilla extract and mix well.

2.  In a smaller bowl, gently warm the coconut oil to a liquid.  Add coconut oil, chamomile / calendula infused oil, jojoba oil, and honey.  Stir and mix well till everything is well combined.

3.  Add the essential oils.  Ginger essential oil is great for circulation,fatigue, nausea, and indigestion, but should  not be used during pregnancy or if you suffer from high blood pressure or epilepsy.

4.  Apply in the shower or bath.  Be careful, the oils make the floor slippery!  You can also use any time your hands feel dry by doing a quick scrub in the sink!
